What is Facial Liposuction?

Facial Liposuction is the breaking up and suctioning out of fat cells from a tiny incision through a tube. This procedure can help improve your facial contour and remove pockets of stubborn fat.

The First Steps

What’s The First Step?

If you are traveling to or are in the New York City area and believe a Facial Liposuction is for you, please contact the office of Dr. Stephen M. Warren, MD, and schedule your consultation. Dr. Warren will review your medical history, discuss the procedure and the goals you have from it, and examine your face and neck. By the end of this appointment, Dr. Warren will be able to craft a customized surgical plan for you. If you are in agreement with this plan, you will be able to schedule your surgical date with our Patient Coordinator who will provide you with any instructions to follow before your surgery.

When discussing your medical history with Dr. Warren, it is very important to be open and honest with him. Full disclosure allows him to make the best choices when it comes to your surgical plan and helps prevent potential risks.

What to Expect on the Day of Facial Liposuction

On the day of your Facial Liposuction, you will first be administered general anesthesia to make you comfortable during the procedure. Once you are under, Dr. Warren makes small, discreet incisions (a little less than ½ inch) in your face or neck. A tube, also called a cannula, is then inserted into the incision and attached to a suction machine and begins to remove the excess fat cells.

The entire procedure can take between a half hour to a full hour or more.

How Much Does Facial Liposuction Cost in New York City?

The cost of Facial Liposuction in NYC will vary depending on several factors. When you come in for your consultation, Dr. Warren will have a better understanding of what you will need to achieve your desired appearance and what your surgical plan will look like. Once this has been determined, you will be provided with a cost breakdown for your treatment.

Facial Liposuction Recovery

Following your surgery, you will be able to return home. We recommend having a ride ready from a friend or family member as you may still be a little groggy from the anesthesia. You will need to wear compression garments during your recovery to prevent unnecessary swelling. There will be some scarring and may appear red and possibly raised for the first 2 – 3 months. Over time, the scarring will become more pale, flat, and soft as it matures. It is very normal to experience numbness, tingling, or burning around the incision site, however, this should be temporary.

As you recover, you will need to keep your head elevated and as still as possible for the first few days after surgery to minimize additional swelling. A cold compress can be used to help numb any discomfort and also keep the swelling down. The average patient will need between 7 and 12 days to recover, depending on the degree of their surgery and how their body reacts. You should also avoid any strenuous activities, such as working out or heavy housework, for at least 2 weeks. In order to achieve the best results, you should also avoid alcohol, steam baths, or saunas for several months. You will be asked to return about a week following your surgery for a post-op appointment so Dr. Warren will be able to assess your recovery.

Liposuction is a permanent procedure. Depending on your skin elasticity, if you end up gaining a lot of weight, you may notice some rippling occur.
